Performance of an automated photoplethysmography-based artificial intelligence algorithm to detect atrial fibrillation

In this report for Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal, Daniel Mol (Department of Cardiology, OLVG Hospital, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and colleagues (including Trudie Lobban, Founder and CEO of Arrhythmia Alliance) review the use of photoplethysmography (PPG) using the camera of smartphones and smartwatches to detect atrial fibrillation. They comment: "The algorithm was validated in patients with AF, and whether the algorithm is able to detect atrial tachycardias is unclear. All recordings in this study were supervised by a local investigator. The performance of this algorithm in a nonclinical environment and in a population with a lower pretest probability needs further investigation."
